Join us in Ecuador for an amazing day hiking holiday experience in the Andes. Black Sheep Inn is a perfect location to discover several micro-climates and landscapes.
1. Descend into the eroded Rio Toachi canyon system and visit the rural village of Itualo, play on the suspension bridge even ride up the other side to Isinlivi.
2. Climb up above the treeline to the Andean moorlands/paramo and visit a Swiss style cheese factory.
3. Descend through the mysterious Cloud Forest of the Iliniza Ecological Reserve and see orchids, waterfalls and and moss covered forest.
4. Do not miss Laguna Quilotoa, a volcanic crater lake inside an active volcano! At the crater there are many options: hike down to the waters edge for a frigid swim or kayak out to the center, ride a mule back up to the top, or trek the entire rim in about 5 hours peaking at about 12,900 feet!
At the Black Sheep Inn in Ecuador, ewe are the boss! We will give you maps and guidance or even hire you a guide. Hikes range from 1 hour to all day long. Included with your stay are 3 meals (usually with a packed lunch to take with on the excursion) and unlimited tea, coffee, purified water and homemade baked goods.
There are many directions to head each day for your Day Hiking Paradise Holiday to discover Inca Ruins, local artisans woodworking furniture and crafts, the Swiss style cheese factory, not to mention canyons, cloud forest and most of all the must see destination of Laguna Quilotoa.
After a day of hard hiking in the Andes, relax in the wood-fired sauna and soaking pool or with an hour long massage or stretch out in the Yoga Studio.
